Just like that one tweet set the Internet ablaze with reports of a leaked list of purported 2019 Grammy winners.
The tweet – which also included a video claiming to show all the winners for the upcoming Grammy Awards next month – named Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” as the ceremony’s Song of the Year recipient, Cardi B’s “I Like It” as Record of the Year winner, and Album of the Year honor going to R&B songstress H.E.R.
As fans of the alleged losers began making their disappointment known, a spokesperson for the Recording Academy opted to shut down the hoopla by releasing an official statement. Read it inside:
“There is no legitimacy to this,” the spokesperson said. “Grammy Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the Grammy Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by [accounting firm] Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”
